Ojomo gave a thumbs-up and waved as he was being taken off the field on the cart. The Eagles confirmed he, too, suffered a neck injury but also had “movement in all of his extremities.” 

The 25-year-old has been impressing throughout the summer and has been pushing for a spot on Philadelphia’s 53-man roster to begin the season. In the preseason opener against the Ravens last week, Cleveland carried over his strong training camp, catching five of his team-high 10 targets for 68 yards.
